ARMCHAIR REMOTE FAQS


WHAT VERSION OF XBMC / KODI DO I NEED?


A minimum of version 12, known as Frodo.

HOW I GET ARMCHAIR REMOTE TO CONNECT TO MY XBMC/KODI SETUP?



There are a few things to check:


XBMC/KODI SETTINGS TO CHECK

Go to Settings > Services > Webserver and ensure that ‘Allow control of XBMC via HTTP' is enabled. Also, make a note of the port number; you’ll need to enter this in the settings screen of Armchair Remote.

Go to Settings > Services > Remote Control and ensure that ‘Allow programs on other systems to control XMBC’ is enabled.


SETTINGS TO ENTER INTO ARMCHAIR REMOTE

In order for Armchair Remote to connect successfully to XBMC / Kodi, you will need to enter the IP address of the computer running XBMC / Kodi.

You will also need to enter the port number that XBMC / Kodi uses. As mentioned above, this can be found in XBMC / Kodi by going to Settings > Services > Webserver


PRO TIP

It’s a good idea to set your computer's IP Address manually rather allow the computer to obtain an IP Address via DHCP to prevent any future connectivity issues.

Or connect using your host name instead of using your IP Address. (i.e. HOME-THEATRE-PC)

Remember: If your computer is issued a new IP Address (you may not realise that this has happened), you will need to re-enter the new IP Address into the Armchair Remote settings screen to restore connectivity.

WHAT NETWORK CONDITIONS DO I NEED?


You'll need wireless access to your local network (for your iPhone). This is typically achieved through the use of a wireless router or wireless access point. While you can connect your XBMC/Kodi device to your network wirelessly, if you have the option to use a wired connection, that's preferable.
